Drugs, Government, and Idaho Cows.

The federal government sued Idaho dairy G&H Dairy at the beginning of the month because cows sent to the slaughterhouse had drugs in their systems over the allowed limit.

According to the FDA, they require that the “manufacturers demonstrate that the amount of hormone left in each edible tissue after treatment is below the appropriate safe level.”

It’s nice to see some consequences because I feel like this happens more than we realize.

It’s a good thing that almond milk and soy milk don’t contain hormones, or I would be out of luck!
